Beets, particularly sugar beets and specially-bred energy beets, are becoming more and more popular. The storage of the beets in silos or silage tubes is complicated and expensive. Collecting beet pulp in foil-lined reservoirs represents a comparatively simple and cost-effective alternative to this. More
In order to be economically viable, biogas plants today must be able to be operated using a variety of energy crops and bio waste. However, changing sources can rapidly become a problem for the operating company: The consistency and composition of the biomass is difficult to predict due to natural fluctuations in their origin, coarse material continues to block lines and pumps.

wo things are severely limited on ships: space and time. Compactness is particularly vital in the machine room, as each centimetre means a loss at the expense of valuable transport capacity. At the same time, the systems have to be robust, as manpower can hardly be switched to repairs at sea and interim port stops are to be avoided at all costs for reasons of time. So maximum demands are placed on safety-critical systems such as bilge pumps. More
There are two aspects of wastewater treatment plants at Celle (Germany) which have a direct use: in addition to cleaning waste water, the sewage sludge which arises with the nutrients it contains can be used later as manure in agriculture. The sewage sludge is transported via a pressure pipe around 25 metres in length with several right-angled turns – ten metres of it being geodesic – to a silo and from there it is later spread over agricultural areas. So that the mix can be stored, it is first dewatered in an angle press and flocculating agents are added. More
While Germany still faces many unsolved problems in terms of implementing the energy turnaround, they have moved significantly further on in South America. Of all the countries, the developing nation of Brazil is proving itself to be the role model when it comes to renewable energies. Around 75 percent of the electricity requirement is covered by hydroelectric power there. More
